Simon Deacon replied to Rosie Sherry's discussion How do you decide what to automate in testing?
"One place I automate things is in the arena of real time responses. If I need to nail an output response to a resolution of +/- 300 microseconds I can use a scope to measure the waveform as a one off, but it can start to get tricky when…"

Simon Deacon replied to sarah grace amarila's discussion Programming Skills A Must
"It's not necessary. Sometimes its great to be able to knock up a quick tool to help you with testing though. Sometimes its good to be able to read the code of a product you want to test. It may be more useful when testing in certain industries…"

"I think it's down to the hard work you have put in creating a very interesting agenda that made it a no-brainer (plus the fact that I can see the Lowry from our office window!)."

Simon Deacon replied to sarah grace amarila's discussion Selenium vs AutoIt
"It depends on what you want to do, but since you've mentioned Selenium I guess you want to automate some checks on webpages or browser based apps. If that's what you're after, Selenium. AutoIT hasn't really moved with the times.…"

Simon Deacon replied to sarah grace amarila's discussion Question : How can I run scripts using Au3record Autoit ?
"I've used AutoIT in the past for some simple automation tasks, but I've always found the recording tool does not work very well. If want to use AutoIT for a specific task it is better to hand code it. There are a few common pitfalls with…"

Simon Deacon replied to Rosie Sherry's discussion Yahoo’s Engineers Move to Coding Without a QA Team
"It's interesting. Everybody should own quality, and it seems they've forced this to happen by changing the chain of responsibility to rest with the developer. Combined with the continuous delivery it has worked for them. In their context…"

Simon Deacon replied to Antonio Pomare's discussion How did you "fall" into testing?
"I was a product developer (hardware / software) on safety critical stuff and so being involved with test was quite normal. I was sent a job spec for another developer role working on a safety critical project. I turned up for the interview, and it…"

Simon Deacon replied to Prena m's discussion Path coverage
"Is this college work or real work? I only ask because you talk about a program, then seem to indicate there is only one file. It's either a massive dogs breakfast, or a something very simple like an academic exercise. Either way I think you may…"
